  • The author call for Women No Longer Waiting: Walking Out Their Greatness is for women who have dealt with insurmountable odds in walking out their purpose yet continue to walk out their greatness and see manifestations occurring on a regular basis. It is for those willing to share their journey—both the highs and lows—and be totally transparent while doing so.
  • There are many benefits to being a part of this anthology. For those who aspire to become an author yet lack enough info to put together a full book, inclusion in this publication helps them achieve their dream of becoming a published author. For those who are already published authors, being a part of this anthology helps add to their portfolio.
    In addition, opportunities for great exposure via the promotions and marketing done in partnership with REGS Books Publishing will help each contributor garner worldwide exposure. There are many other perks as well.
    The reader will be encouraged by the contents of the anthology, especially those who are pursuing their purpose, as they will read stories from those who have possibly been in the same predicament yet who persevered. The reader will come to realize that in spite of all the obstacles they face, if what they’re doing is truly their passion, it is attainable.
  • Many women who are considering being a part of the anthology may question whether their story matters enough to share it with others in a book. They may also question how they will be perceived by friends, family, and loved ones by being brutally honest and totally transparent in sharing their truth.
    My response would be: Your story may be the catalyst that provides hope to the struggling student, entrepreneur, or author that inspires them to keep going. Your story is important. Your story may be the hope someone is waiting for.
    As to what others may say or think, don’t be concerned about that. If this is what you believe you’re purposed to do, then become a contributor; the understanding of those near and dear to you may likely come later.
    One other concern a new writer may have is understanding the writing process. Don’t worry about this, as once all of the contributors are in place, we will have weekly meetings until the project is completed, answering any questions you may have and helping you all the way.
  • The first anthology I compiled was "Women Waiting to Exhale: You Have Permission to Exhale" . This was a great learning experience for me in doing anthologies.
  • 15 Minute Appointments can be scheduled by going to Calendly.com/reginamixoninspires to address any questions you may have.
